with Dave Metcalf and Andrei Duman June 4 – 10 2017
Our workshop in Bali will focus primarily on the Balinese culture, their traditions and temples, as well as the landscape that has been shaped over millennia of farming or preserved in reverence for the sleeping volcanoes that inhabit the island. We’ll have many opportunities to explore the landscape as well as participate in several cultural events.
Be it rising early for sunrise over the volcanoes, instructing on the finer points of portrait photography with the locals, or helping us capture the subtle light and grand sky over the rice fields at sunset, this team never failed to inspire and delight.
This workshop is being guided by 5 year Bali resident Dave Metcalf and Andrei Duman. http://www.andreiduman.com/ www.davidmetcalfphotography.com
Andrei regularly holds photography workshops in various countries and is a trained PODAS instructor, so anyone interested in learning about these amazing Phase One Camera Systems, this workshop is very much for you also.
Duman is patient, ever curious and adventurous. His passion is evident in every composition and with each new environment, he challenges himself to be fully immersed in every location, learning to navigate unfamiliar cultures and different ways of life so he can experience each new place on his own terms. His artistic style reflects his appreciation for the natural world. His photos are clean, powerful and evocative. They encourage the viewer to look beyond what is right in front of them to the scale and breadth of what surrounds us.
Dave Metcalf , author of three books on Indonesia, Bali and Borneo is a regular contributor to many magazines in Indonesia through his photography and writing skills, he opened a photography gallery in Ubud, Bali two years ago and is extremely passionate about supporting Bali culture and presenting the true soul and spirit of Bali through his images. He has organised and led more than 30 photography workshops in Bali, Borneo, Java Myanmar, Alaska and the US over the past five years. His passion is indigenous and cultural photography but also covers all aspects of travel photography.
This workshop is all-inclusive. There’s no need to worry about opening your wallet once you arrive as the workshop fee covers meals, lodging and transportation. Each attendee will be provided their own Phase One XF camera system to use during the workshop (if required) and be provided access to our complete line of lenses, accessories and first hand technical knowledge.
This workshop is designed to be inspiring as it is adventurous, while still remaining relaxing and informal. Though we’ll be spending a majority of our time in the field to make use of the morning and evening light, there will be inspirational presentations from our instructors, tutorials as well as a bit of downtime in the middle of the day to allow you enjoy the tranquility that Bali has to offer. We will cover many techniques of photography as they pertain to Landscape and Portrait photography.
The objective of this workshop is to not only learn and improve your photography skills and techniques but reach into the real heart and soul of this small paradise island. You will be lead into the villages to connect with the friendly Balinese people who love to have their photos taken, learn about their rich and ancient culture and be challenged to express your feelings and connection through the camera lens.
The cost of this trip is U.S. $5000 per person. This will cover all expenses once you arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Indonesia. The only expense that is not covered is alcohol and additional room charges during your stay. Dave and his team will pick you up at the airport upon your arrival and provide all lodging, meals and transportation with the group until returning you to the airport at the end of the workshop.
We do ask that you bring a sturdy tripod for the morning sunrise shoots, a laptop, a variety of lenses that will cover from wide angle up to 300mm, although you will be close to the subject most of the time. Filters for landscape and waterfalls can be useful. As this workshop will bring us to some cooler high peaks for sunrise and sunset, as well as rather warm inland locations that may require walking short distances, it is recommended you bring light but warm outer wear as well as appropriate light clothing for the tropical environment. Aside from that you only need to bring your passion for photography and an open heart and mind.
The workshop will begin and end with pick-up and drop-off from the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). Arrivals should be scheduled for no later than 1pm on June 4th and return flights the afternoon of June 10th. Flights may be limited so if you plan on arriving early, or staying late, we can certainly help accommodate your schedule. We’ll be traveling via passenger van to most locations but will be sure to provide ample room in each vehicle for comfort. Dietary restrictions can certainly be satisfied and any travel assistance you may need is just an email away.
